An introduction to mathematical modelling and simulation via case studies using standard computer packages. Structured programming for mathematical problem solving.
An introductory course in mathematical modelling and computation. This course introduces the use of computational methods to solve real-world problems. The course includes case studies chosen from a range of engineering and scientific applications. Topics: the MATLAB programming environment; basic concepts in structured programming; basic numerical methods; case studies from engineering and scientific applications, showing the process of modelling through formulation, solution and interpretation.
to introduce the MATLAB programming envrionment to give a basic introduction to structured programming to introduce basic numerical methods to practise implementing numerical methods computationally to introduce the concepts and techniques involved in formulating a mathematical model of a real-world situation to provide skills in the interpretation of computational results in the context of a real-world problem
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
RP: MATH109 or EMTH119 (prior or concurrent enrolment recommended). If you are taking EMTH171 concurrently with EMTH118 you are likely to experience difficulties.
MATH109 or EMTH119 (prior or concurrent enrolment recommended). If you are taking EMTH171 concurrently with EMTH118 you are likely to experience difficulties.
You will have a three hour computer lab each week during the course, which will contribute to your final grade.
There is no required text for this course. Recommended reading: Chapman, Matlab programming for engineers. Chapra & Canale, Numerical methods for engineers.
